Scientific American (1845-1909)

Scientific American (informally abbreviated SciAm) is a popular science magazine. It is notable for its long history of presenting science monthly to an educated but not necessarily scientific public, through its careful attention to the clarity of its text as well as the quality of its specially commissioned color graphics. Many famous scientists, including Einstein, have contributed articles in the past 167 years. It is the oldest continuously published monthly magazine in America.
